Cleaning & Stuff :: Le nettoyage -)))

VisualCommentary_JeffMoores

I wanted to offer you a Visual Commentary by Jeff Moores as this is exactly how I feel when I am about to paint. First I have to clean up the area, do the filing if it needs to be done, clean the floor if need be and once everything is spotless, I can settle down and start painting. The problem, is that when I finish painting, the area is a total mess!!! This cartoon is hilarious and represents well what I was up to today… as I was cleaning!

While I was cleaning and rummaging through old files, I came across drawings that I had done when I was very young and studying to become a graphic artist. It was a thrill for me to find them again and linger and reminisce. I hope that you enjoy my 1984 drawing of Margaret Thatcher.

Je voulais vous offrir cette bande dessinée que je trouve extrêment comique car je me vois tellement dans cette caricature. C’est vraiment typique de mes habitudes — je dois absolument peindre dans un endroit propre — donc quand je décide de peindre, je serre les choses en désordre, je balaie le plancher, je nettoie le bureau et quand tout est beau, je suis prête à peindre! Le problème est quand je finis, mon endroit de travail est tout croche et en désordre… la même chose que dans la bande dessinée!!!

Pendant que je nettoyais aujourd’hui j’ai tombé sur de vieux dessins de Margaret Thatcher que j’ai faits en 1984 lorsque j’étais étudiante en graphisme… -))) C’était pour une étude de traits.
